What makes ESL editors different?
ESL editors are experienced at quickly identifying common errors made by authors from non-native writers from different language backgrounds. Papers written by ESL authors typically require in-depth editing. A skilled ESL editor will improve the clarity and readability of a document, focusing on flow as well as grammar, word usage, spelling, and punctuation03
What are some common ESL English errors?
English can be a difficult and confusing language to write in for ESL speakers. Ensuring the correct use of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure can be tedious. Some of the most commonly made ELS errors are as follows:04
a. ESL writers commonly tend to confuse indefinite (a or an) and definite (the) determiners. A is used for words beginning with a consonant, an is used for words that begin with a vowel, and the can be used without having to listen for vowel sounds for a specific subject/object.
b. There is a specific order to be followed when using multiple adjectives. This can confuse ESL writers who may not know these nuances of writing English.
c. Most ESL writers tend to use a thesaurus but often misunderstand homonyms (words that sound and are spelled the same but have different meanings)
d. Common punctuation mistakes include missing or wrongly placed commas, apostrophes, and inverted commas.
e. Differences in sentence structure (subject, object, and verb positions) between English and other languages can also make translating ideas between two languages challenging and contribute to language errors.
Who should hire an ESL editor?
While ESL editors usually work with non-native speakers, we often see even native English speakers turning to ESL editors to help them deliver carefully crafted, error-free documents. ESL editing is more detailed and focuses on specific issues that ESL writers face. In addition to correcting problems like grammar, punctuation, spelling, word choice, and clarity, ESL editing offers suggestions for overall improvement including rewriting awkward sentences and better structural coherence.05
